General Banter / Meeting Really is on Wednesday, November 8
« on: November 03, 2006, 04:40:31 PM »
Please note that I made a mistake on the postcards that were sent to about 230 people yesterday. It was written that the meeting was November 8, which is correct. However, I also wrote that it was Tuesday, which was wrong. So, for the record, the meeting is Wednesday, November 8.



Tournaments / Rosedale Amateur Championships Results
« on: October 29, 2006, 01:30:22 PM »
With temperatures soaring into the 60s under sunny skies, and generally light winds, it was a great day for a disc golf tournament at Rosedale Park. Good spirits and sportsmanship abounded at the 10th version of the Rosedale Amateur Championships where seven people earned championship titles, including four women, five junior boys, and for the first time, a junior girl. Over half the field won something. For the most part, the divisions were competitive. Erik Kolkmeier was the big cash winner on the day, collecting the ace pool of $80 for acing #1 during the second round. Eric, along with Bill Neenan, Bill Wade, Jared Arnold, and Leslie Palmer each won a 12 pack of Boulevard Pale Ale in the second annual closest-to-the-beer contest.

Thanks for everyone who played. There was absolutely no negativity all day, which is kind of rare when people gather to compete. A big thanks to Tammy Morrison who, besides helping with scoring and getting things organized, was there all day, which allowed me to play in this event for the first time. Also thanks goes to Sean Gibson for moving the baskets between rounds, John Chapman for helping with scoring, and Dan Coffman for keeping things moving during the first round and getting things started the second round.

While things did go really well, I definitely bogeyed in not explaining the drop zone on #8 for round 1, and not having some kind of CTP for the junior divisions. I apologize for these oversights.

Disc Golf World ran four events this year: the Swope Spring Renewal, the H2 Open, the Big O, and the RAC. It's our intention to be back with these events next year, and are thinking about adding  events at Cliff Drive and Wyco, connecting all the events by creating the Disc Golf World Series of Kansas City. Stay tuned!

Partnering with the KCFDC, the next event for DGW is the Ice Bowl on January 28. This is the event that cannot be postponed because of weather, and there are no wimps or whiners allowed, nor any excuses for not showing up. As the Ice Bowl is our charity fundraiser, we're hoping to find at least one "big-ticket" item to spice up the closest-to-the-pin contest. If you're interested in helping out with the Ice Bowl, please let me know.

Tournaments / The 2006 Big "O"
« on: July 26, 2006, 11:42:00 PM »
Those events were Olathe Opens and run by Ned Smethers. He had a beer sponsor and somehow transported a big ole tub of beer around a short fun course that we played twice. It seems like I played in at least two, and maybe three of those events after moving here in 1992. We held the regular tournament (at least one was a C Tier) at Prairie and then set up the nine holer at Oregon Trail to be a little less in the public eye. One year in particular is memorable when Sam Ferrans, Gregg Hosfold, and Crazy John played.  I remember Bruce H bobbing for beer in the tub and smackedhis forehead hard on a beer was stacked perfectly on top of another. I'm fuzzy on this but there was some kind of playground equipment like monkey bars out there. Hosfeld was doing something on them (like hanging upside down) with a frisbee and Harvey Barger of Ocoberfriz fame offered him free Fruz  entry if he could do it. He gave me a free entry just for trying it. But I can't remember what it was or if Gregg could do it. I know I couldn't.

Anyway, Ned eventually moved and the Olathe Open stopped. I came up with the name Big O in 1996, in honor of Olathe, what else? Ahem. I found a flyer from 1997 announcing the 2nd Big O.

Quote from: "Tom"
I think the original big "o" was in 1990, or 91. We used Prarie Center and Oregon Trail parks. Oregon Trail had a temp 9 hole course put in for the tourney, and at least one year we had drunken dubs after the tourney there.

Andy is on the ball! Beat me to it. Wanted to get the link to the flyer before posting. Many of you will be getting the message below sent to you directly. If you want to get on the Disc Golf World tournament announcement list, please send me your name and address to rick@discgolfworld.

Please see the contents of a flyer below announcing the 2006 Big 0, a
two-round KDGA Oz Tour event that will be held Saturday, August 5. This is not a PDGA sanctioned event, although PDGA rules will be in effect. The 2006 Big O is a Junior Targeted Tournament, so if you are under 20 or know of some kids under 20 who have wanted to play in a tournament against others of the same age, this is an attempt to gather them for one event.

Please go here to download an entry form:

Hope to see you there.

The 2006 Big O
A 2-Round KDGA Oz Tour Disc Golf Event

Saturday, August 5, 2006 • Prairie Center Park in Olathe

We’ve uncovered buried historical documents proving that first Big 0 was held in 1996, but we’re not sure if this is the 11th annual or not. Because of the increasing number of junior (ages 19 and under) players who have come into Disc Golf World during the last year, this year’s Big 0 is a JUNIOR TARGETED TOURNAMENT. What this means is that we are encouraging juniors (ages 19 and under) to play, learn, and have fun. Towards that end, we will be mixing the divisions for the first round and will have a clinic after the tournament. In addition to the $10 Disc Golf World prize voucher, all juniors will receive a mini and rulebook. While this is not a PDGA sanctioned event, PDGA rules will be in effect.

Adult Pro Divisions: Open $44; Pro Women $24; Pro Masters (born 1966 or earlier) $24; Pro Grandmasters (born 1956 or earlier) $24.
Adult Amateur Divisions (Men & Women): Advanced: $29; Amateur Masters (born 1966 or earlier) $24; Intermediate: $24; Novice: $19
Junior Divisions (Boys & Girls) $17: Ages 17-19 (born 1987 or later); Ages 14-16 (born 1990 or later); Ages 11-13 (born 1993 or later); Ages 10 & under (born 1996 or later).
    Junior-aged players may register for adult divisions. All amateur/junior players get a $10 DGW voucher players’ package. There will be plenty of merchandise to choose from. Call before the event with special requests.
    Cash prizes for pros. Prizes for ams include merchandise and/or DGW vouchers. In addition, personalized disc trophies will be mailed after the tournament to the winners of the amateur divisions with at least 3 entrants. $2.00 of each entry goes to the Kansas Disc Golf Association. Active Kansas City Flying Disc Club members may deduct $2.00 from their entry.
    Ace Pool is $2.00. If no ace is hit, there will be a closest-to-the-pin contest for half the pool. The other half goes the KDGA Oz Tour’s roving ace pool. KDGA members who hit an ace, not only get the Big O pool but half of the ongoing pool as well. For more about the KDGA and the Oz Tour, go to

Field limit is 90 players. Please help by pre-registering, or at least,
calling ahead.

Tournaments / The 3rd H2 Open Was A Fine Day in the Park
« on: July 24, 2006, 10:13:50 AM »
Wow! What a great day at Water Works on Saturday, when 69 players in seven divisions participated in the 3rd H2 Open and Celebration. The competition was spirited in most of the divisions. It came down to a playoff in the open division between the Kevins: Babbit and Corbett. With everyone pulling for Kevin, the men played the middle short #1. Kevin made his 25 footer for the win while Kevin C left his drive left and couldn't drain his birdie attempt. KC's most prominent pro player, Tavish Sanders, held off Kathy Betcher, who traveled from Rock Island Illinois, to win by two. Grandmaster Bruce McQueen, who played in the masters (rated under 940)/grandmasters division had the only sub-par round of the day in that division for a comfy 6-throw win over Tim Elder and Virgil Nunnery. A good friend of Water Works (FOWW), Ken Hostetler, played perhaps the two most steady rounds of his life, shot par for the two throw win over Jack Lowe and Ben Taylor. Proving that consistency and control mean more than distance, another huge FOWW, Brian Woodson triumphed in the am masters, edging a friend of all disc golf parks, Mark Morales, by four throws. In the intermediate, Matt Shively shot the most consistent two rounds to win by two over House Miller and Clay Chance. And finally, newcomer John Riley, playing in his first and last novice division, won easily over another new tournament player, Arbrie Kovacs by 12.

A big thanks to everyone who played and helped. There was no whining whatsoever. A bit thanks goes to Bill Neenan, who sat out the event and kept things going while everyone else played. Kelly Warren and Paul Eklund, assisted by Lynne Warren and Matt Eklund provided some extremely tasty BBQ, which fed everyone. Jack Lowe and John Riley helped set the course on Friday.d Ben Taylor and Pauly Cross unlocked the baskets during practice on Saturday morning. The experiment to get groups to move baskets as they finished their last hole of the first round worked perfectly. Thanks to everyone who toted the pins. Thanks to John Chapman for leading the way on scoring with an assist to Dan Cashen. I'm sure I've forgotten to thank someone, but I hope not.

Next year's H2 Open will definitely be happening in the same time frame. We'll be limiting the field to 72 players and like this year, we will be sending out invitations to those who have played in the first three events prior to opening it up the public.

Thanks again to everyone for a great day in the park. It was a blast.

The next DGW event is the Big O in Olathe on August 5. More on that later today.

Uh, you putting the baskets back in for this?


Quote from: "superq"

Tee off is at 10 a. m. at Crestview Park in Topeka KS.

We're holding the 3rd H2 Open and Celebration at Water Works Park on Saturday, July 22. As always, this event is for "Those Who Truly Love Water Works Park" as we will be gathering to play and socialize on one of the most enjoyable disc golf courses on the planet.

The field is limited to 90 players (there are about 65 spots left as I type this), and this event has historically always filled. If you're going to play, pre-registration is a good idea.

I hope you can join in this celebration event as it always a blast to play some disc golf with friends at such a beautiful venue. If you think you're going to play, please let me know beforehand. Thanks.  Rick

Please pass this message to any professionally-oriented disc golfers who live in Missouri or close to Missouri.

As the PDGA State Coordinator for Missouri, I get to fill one spot at the United States Disc Golf Championship. For you who have never qualified through a regular qualifier like the KC Wide Open, here is a chance to play in the toughest tournament field on one of the truly great disc golf courses. Because of the large entry fee and sponsorship support, the purse is one of the biggest each year as well.

Because the interest in this event has historically been low in Missouri, I'm not running a competition for this one spot. Rather, I'm curious to see if anyone wants to play. The tournament will consist of one round a day on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (October 15-17), and a final round on Saturday for the 150 or so players who make the cut. The entry fee (I think) is still $225. The event is held on the campus of Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC, which is about 45 minutes from the airport in Charlotte, NC.

My first preference is to have someone who lives in Missouri attend the event. However, I would like to award the chance to play to someone, even if not a Missouri resident.

If you are serious about wanting to play, which means understanding that there is a severe financial requirement to do so, please call or write me soon. Whoever is going, must have their entry fee paid before August 1.

Thanks for your interest.

General Banter / Re: Designer Info

Down under: James Wallace and John Buckle, with assists from Jay R and others.

Water Works: Jim Kreeger and Ace Mason.

Rosedale: Ace was the primary guy I think, but likely there were others. Before my time here!

Swope: originally designed by Tom Ingle. Dan Cashen is most reponsible for the current design.

I think you're correct on Olathe (Tom Butler knows this story better than I) and Wyco. Jack has been the chief designer at Cliff, but has listened to many along the way.


Quote from: "eupher61"
I need information on who designed each course here in KC area.

I know WyCo  Mike  Wesley, Jake Carmack, and Kevin Montgomery  Rosie--Ace Mason   Down Under--Jay (right??)   Cliff--Jack L mostly  Olathe--Ned Smethers et al   BV Jim K and Dan...but, who should be credited with Swope?  Water Works (Ace?  Hal??)  

If this info isn't right as it stands, please correct!
